Chad Bahr, Planning & Zoning Administrator, joined the meeting at 10:10 a.m. to request action on 2003 Conditional Use Permit #4.  Mr. Ron Jones of Selective Site Consultants Inc. for AT&T Wireless and Ms. Sheryl White, a landowner were also present.  CUP #4 would authorize Lawrence Temple, through Selective Site Consultants Inc for AT&T Wireless, to build a telecommunications tower and land use in King City Township.  This request was brought to the Commissioners at their July 1, 2003 meeting and at that time, one landowner, Ms. Sheryl White, objected to the tower.  The request at that time had been approved by the Planning Board by a 5-0 vote and then sent to the Commissioners.  The Commissioners asked Mr. Bahr to return it to the Planning Board, due to the fact that the original location of the tower had been changed and that landowners within ½ mile of the new proposed tower site should be notified, giving them an opportunity to object.  That was done and, again, only one landowner objected.  The Planning Board then approved the request by a 5-2 vote.  Ms. White suggested another site for the tower and Mr. Jones stated that site had been considered but was not acceptable because of its elevation and distance from other towers.  After discussion, Commissioner Patrick made a motion to approve Resolution 03-21 approving CUP #4 for a 250’ cellular tower and use in King City Township.  Chairman Terry seconded.  Chairman Terry voted aye.  Commissioner Schroeder voted aye.  Commissioner Patrick voted aye.
